Moonta Remembers

Moonta will celebrate the centenary of the World War 1 armistice by holding a memorial service, a community parade and a festival in Queen Square.

The parade will be anything circa 1918 including military, bands and just fun.

Make use of your Kernerwek Lowender costumes when you come along.

Moonta held a similar parade in 1915 to raise money for the war effort and this event is in part a re-enactment of that parade.

The event is being hosted by Moonta RSL Sub-branch and Moonta & District Progress Assoc.
